    Go to http://www.alertra.com and type the URL in the spot check box. That will tell you if the site is accessible from various locations around the world, so you don't have to ask people to check. It shows HG is indeed down.

    For the HG site and client servers to all be down, it's probably a data center wide issue, like failure of some of their network connections.

    Provided the OP has started this thread at the same time at which the site went down originally.

    There were some routing issues at ThePlanet. The resulting downtime was of about 25 minutes. Brent, Hostgator's owner, announced that if a customer's total downtime exceeded 45 minutes for the month (uptime of less than 99.9&#37, they will honor the uptime guarantee, so fill in a ticket if you're in that situation.
